Flooded Moscow: Photos and videos of recent apocalypse in the capital

Posted on August 17, 2016 by Andrey


The precipitation record for nearly 130 years was beaten in Moscow. The capital went under the water because of heavy rains, and the Yauza River burst its banks here and there. Here are photos of this crazy collapse that Muscovites share in social media.

    I just came from Moscow. They are spending millions of dollars on replacing all sidewalks with GRANITE! Thousands of tons of granite. No other city in the world could possibly afford granite sidewalks. No wonder they have no money for anything else.

    It is very similar to 1930s, when tens of millions of Soviet farmers died from starvation, while in Moscow the government built subway stations with marble walls and bronze statues.

    History repeats itself, again.

      …”No wonder they have no money for anything else…”. –They do, “Karlo” boy. If you don’t, that’s another matter.

      …”It is very similar to 1930s, when tens of millions of Soviet farmers died….” –(?) LOL. No, it’s not, “Karlo” boy. That’s absurd. But apparently, you still live in some place lost 80 years ago.

    • Ferequent Reader says:

      The granite saves billions of rubles in annual maintenance costs in some old streets –a cost which our friend ‘Karlo’ ignores. The stone also helps to improve the looks of these parts ot the town (as many other cities around the world do).

      We are always entertained with this ‘Karlo’ child and his (failed) delusions.
